BEER: Mountain Goat India Pale Ale (Richmond, Victoria)
I’ve always liked the Mountain Goat beers. I fell in love with the Hightail many years ago, even though it had a habit of refermenting in the early early days. This is my first encounter with the IPA and won’t be my last.
Big hoppy nose. Has a beautiful hop flower nose without the harshness. The palate too has a big hop (Citra and Galaxy) hit and a serious alcohol punch, yet the bitterness seems integrated and the palate is long. A big beer but an attractive one, the balance here is almost perfect. Great beer.
Would I buy it again? In a heartbeat
